National War Tax Resistance Conference at Lansdowne Meeting

Filed under: Peace,Politics,Religion — admin @ 5:04 pm

Lansdowne Friends Meeting and Lansdowne Friends School hosted a national conference of conscientious war tax resisters the weekend of May 13-15.  There were about 30 attendees – 20 from around the country and 10 local. The conference included workshops of general interest as well as ones covering more specialized topics. The Meeting and Chester Quarter provided housing for all those requesting housing – 17 attendees. Fran and I accommodated two in our little row house, from Oregon and North Carolina. I was the principle on-site host for the conference — a lot of work for Fran and me, but worth it.  For some of us, paying our government to enable killing in our name is not significantly different from doing the deed ourselves.  Today our money is drafted for continual war and war preparations, not our bodies.
